So Cold It’s Hot

Minus 50

Cold that feels hot;
the sensation of searing skin
too close to a fire.
Exposed fingers become
castanets;
a flamenco dancer
frozen in frame.
Minus 50,
where pain and pleasure
collide.

  1. This little poem is so good it shocks my senses! I can FEEL it. In my childhood world, school was canceled at -20F. I think you deserve a holiday.
